Having the ability to maintain the content of your own website is a great way for you to take control of your own web marketing. With WordPress or our own GRWebSolutionsCMS, we can make managing a website an easy task even for the technically illiterate.
Do I need a Content Management System?
A CMS is not necessary for everyone, but anyone can use it. If you:
Want to make updates myself, on your own time
Need website updates several times a month
Want to maintain a blog
…then a CMS is a likely a great option for you.
We have played with many CMS available both free, open-source and paid. One of the primary reasons we like WordPress is because of it’s huge community which improves the core functionality very quickly. They also provide a large plugin directory which extends the possibilities of WordPress with features like calendar systems, advanced contact forms and so much more. We have yet to run into a project that couldn’t be done in WordPress. Our very own website is powered by WordPress.
Also important is the ease-of-use in the administration area for our clients. We don’t want to hand over a website for you to maintain that requires a BS degree in Computer Science or even much training at all. Many of our clients don’t require any help from us to learn how to manage their website content with WordPress.
After working with WordPress we realize it is sometimes overkill for their needs. Some clients just want a basic site… and the ability to make some simple text changes themselves. So we setup GRWebCMS: A full featured hosted content management system that lets you manage content, setup contact forms, maintain a blog, manage photo galleries, sell products, manage calendars/events and so much more!
A hosted CMS means that the software which powers GRWebCMS is already setup on a server and we can have a functional site in just a few minutes. We then implement your custom design or we have template designs available for you to choose from at a lower price point. GRWebCMS features cannot be extended to do unique or custom functionality but this is what makes it so simple to work with and thus allows a lower price point.
